Thomas Fattorini Ltd is a family run business who have been making school badges, trophies and awards for over 100 years.
Our schools motto since 2004, has been to "help teachers motivate children" so it is important to us that the badges and awards that we offer you are of good quality, good value and that they last - to reflect the values of the school, the achievement of the student and our environmental obligations.
Our quality commitment to you
Our company motto is to “Make once and make well”. All our enamel badges are of the highest quality in order to reflect and endorse the achievement or the responsibility of the student. We aim to make them last a lifetime, as your students may become important alumni, and potentially your future ambassadors.
Our environmental commitment to you
We are a make-to-order company, and aim to have all our products made in the UK in our factories in order to reduce the environmental impact of shipping from the Far East (principally carbon miles and packaging). It may be worth adding that very few UK badge suppliers make their badges in the UK.
Our environmental (14001) and quality systems (9001) are accredited to the ISO international standard.
We hope you find what you need on our website,

Frustrated with limited colours and titles?
We have pioneered a new metal printed badge whereby we can offer you the traditional school styled badge (S6 Shield, S9 Oblong and S4 rectangle) in 16 colours as standard and can be titled as required - without the need for new tooling.
The lettering will be in either white or black as standard (depending on the colour). If you would prefer to have metallic lettering, then this is possible too, but you will needs to contact us. The prices of metallic lettering printed badges will only be marginally more to allow for the administration costs.

Looking for a cheap and cheerful pin badge with your own message on?
2020: We have introduced three new badge styles to compliment our range, the AP15 (circular), AP16 (Square) and AP18 (rectangular). These can be titled as the other traditional badges or can be printed to what ever design you want. These are very cost effective at small quantities so ideal for teachers, or for an year-badge designed by the younger students for those leaving the school.
